pixolus offers mobile image recognition for fast and easy data entry. Simple scanning with a smartphone or tablet replaces tedious and error-prone retyping. Our software reliably reads and digitizes visual information.
Our recognition solutions are robust, fast and simple to use. Image recognition is performed directly on the smartphone, tablet, or mobile computer. The results are instantly available for display or further processing.
Our software modules for data capture, recognition, and handling can be integrated into your existing or planned solutions.
Visual data capture from receipts, price tags, product codes, or IBANs for accounting to meter readings for energy providers – almost any application area can benefit from pixolus’ camera-based data entry.
Our team totales decades of experience in computer vision and machine learning. We have a deep understanding of software development and what it takes to turn a good algorithm into a functioning solution and good user experience. We offer complete solutions or software components, optimized for your processes and needs.

ODI Medical develops a highly innovative tool for medical diagnosis — and we create the acquisition software and the backend for it. The development is set up such that it will stand in a later audit for approval for medical device.
In a joint project with the RWTH Aachen hospital and Philips Healthcare, we will develop an app for support and quality assurance in the intensive care documentation. This three-year project is funded in the programme Leitmarktwettbewerb.NRW Gesundheit.
Even mostly automated businesses, not every measuring point is digitalized – if it does not pay off. For a big player in the chemical industry, we have developed a scan module prototype for a more efficient collection and documentation of manometer readings.
We ported pixometer to Windows for the german water supplier GELSENWASSER. The connection to their closed-source workforce management solution (GE FFA) supports meter reading and meter exchange processes.
Customers of aescoLOGIC use the m.o.p.s inventory management App developed by us for easily ordering medical supplies. They can scan QR codes or just take a picture of the product – either directly in their warehouse or conveniently wherever they go. Furthermore, aescoLOGIC employees use the app on mobile devices with integrated hardware scanners for keeping the warehouses of their clients stocked.
Together with WAVELINE-MAR.COM, we created a multimedia app for the interactive trade fair presence of SOPHOS TECHNOLOGY. Visitors can watch product videos on a provided tablet. They select the product by pointing the tablet camera at the respective icon at the stand.
